We had a group of 5 ranging in age from 12-76. Marie was outstanding!! Her knowledge and patience made our adventure incredible. She lead us through each reppell and 3 miles of hiking with ease. We can't wait to go back for more!!

We had a wonderful day of hiking and rappelling with Matt and Jay. They were easy-going, fun and friendly, and very knowledgable. We felt safe with them and enjoyed all that they showed us.

This was the second year that we have booked a trip with Nate. We had such a great time last year that we brought back 3 other families! We had kids as young as 8 years old rappelling down 100 ft cliffs!! Definitely a life defining adventure for our family! My young daughters got to experience a "girl guide". Marie... More

My son and I booked three separate climbing experiences with Nate, the owner, completely sight-unseen based on their internet reputation. We showed up the first morning to do some canyoneering and were greeted by three very experienced climbers and guides. Nate had assigned us to be with Jay Anderson for all three of our excursions, and, unbeknownst to us, literally... More

After discussing with Nate our level of experience and hopes to summit one of Moab's desert towers, he suggested that the Kor-Ingalls route on Castleton Tower would be a worthy challenge. The day turned out to be perfect with clear blue skies. Nate was an outstanding guide that provided both solid technical climbing skills and rope knowledge (all with a... More

I co-manage an organization called The Wayfaring Band, where we specialize in road trips and other travel opportunities for adults who experience special needs and leadership fellows. As a traveling group, we had never climbed on natural rock. Any apprehension that we could have had was quickly washed away. We felt very cared for and in trusting hands. The guides... More

Did a half-day toprope climbing gig with Moab Desert Adventures with my wife and 15 year old stepdaughter. Nate, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. He responded to all questions very quickly and was very accommodating with all aspects of planning our trip. Marie was our guide and she was FANTASTIC. We were looking for easier beginner routes...

We had an amazing tower climbing trip with Moab Desert Adventures. First, Nate was terrific in helping us figure out what would be the best tower climb for my daughter and me. Then, we were lucky enough to be guided by Marie who is a terrific guide, strong climber and overall fun person to spend the day with! Looking forward... More

My son and I were visiting Moab from CO and wanted to climb Stolen Chimney on Ancient Art but we are not familiar with the Fisher Towers area and have never done any desert climbs, so I was unsure I wanted to lead a climb with a reputation for tricky pro and less than solid rock. I have never climbed... More

Upon calling several Moab area guides for info on doing a tower climb, there was no question in my mind that MDA was the company to go with. Nate was very outgoing and knowledgeable, making our decision to book easy. I'm relatively new to climbing and couldn't have asked for a better first multi-pitch experience. We climbed Ancient Art with... More
